I see your point, they don't want to go up against playoff football at any level. But if they have it on a Saturday during the NFL playoffs, you go up against maybe 1 NFL game, in a different time slot.

Moving it for the lockout would allow the league to say something along the lines of "we moved it for the lockout, and had a better result on a different date, so we'll keep it there" rather than look they they're just giving up going up against NFL/College Football.
If its the last Saturday in January, or even the second last Saturday in January, there will be no NFL football. They would probably wise to avoid the first Saturday of February, as playing on the eve of the Super Bowl will drown out their promotion of the event.
